  2. In the meantime, crisp up the bacon in a separate skillet and set aside to cool.
  3. Spread out the cubed yams in one layer over the skillet. Add butter chicken sauce. Distribute the sauce evenly.* Slightly warm up the sauce over low heat for about 1-2 minutes. Stir occasionally. Make 3-4 wells and crack the eggs one at a time directly over each well and over the butter sauce mixture, making sure to space them evenly over the sauce.

  4. Cover the skillet with a lid and cook over low heat until the egg whites are set and the yolks are still soft and little runny (about 6-7 minutes). Keep an eye on the skillet to make sure that the sauce doesn't reduce too much, which can lead to burning.
